Governor General invests 40 recipients into the Order of Merit of the Police Forces
Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, bestowed the honour of Order of Merit of the Police Forces on one commander, three officers and 36 members on Oct. 31, 2019, in Ottawa.
The Order of Merit of the Police Forces was created in 2000 to recognize conspicuous merit and exceptional service by members and employees of Canadian police forces whose contributions extend beyond protection of the community. Three levels of membership with post-nominal letters reflect long-term, outstanding service: Commander (C.O.M.), Officer (O.O.M.) and Member (M.O.M.).
